Baha: From Refugee to Skate Champ

The collaborative news platform AJ+ recently ran a story about Syrian refugees Baha and Abdullah, their love from blading, and how doing tricks on wheels can actually be a powerful form of resilience. After fleeing Syria, the pair participated in the Lebanese championships and earned their spot on the podium: an inspirational story, and a good reminder of why we should all be grateful for these wheeled toys beneath our feet!

Meet the Syrian refugee skaters trying to beat the Lebanese at their own game. Shot by video journalists Travis Beard and Ellie Kealey in Lebanon.
